Paris U: Barcelona persevered with Adrien Rabiot until the bitter end
- Barcelona considered the Frenchman until the very recent days
- Rabiot is said to want to stay where he is though
One of the most accurate Paris Saint Germain sources in Paris U reports that just before Barcelona agreed the deal on Arturo Vidal, the 23-year-old Rabiot was approached. The response, however, was a rather negative one.
The player is keen on staying at his club and now it's likely that Barcelona may drop any interest in him altogether since too many midfielders have already been brought in.
Gerard Romero confirmed on Friday that Rabiot is indeed no longer a priority and if Barca are to buy one more player this summer this will be Paul Pogba. But one condition must be met - Ousmane Dembele, who cut his holiday short to return to Barca, has to leave.
